By default when you install Laravel Shopper for the first time you configure and create your shop, and this allows you to create a first location which will have the information you defined. This is the initial location in which all products will be stored.
If you have already used Shopify it is a bit the same model, but a little simpler so that you can modify it because the system is accessible for any type of business.
You can set up multiple locations in your store so that you can track inventory and have excel documents of the products ordered in each of your locations. Your locations can be retail stores, warehouses, popups, or any other place where you manage or store inventory. With multiple locations, you have better visibility into your inventory in your business.
A location is a physical place or space where you perform any or all of the following activities: Selling products, shipping or fulfillment orders, and inventory inventory (this may even be your apartment).
From the administration area of your store you cannot manage more than 4 inventories. This system being still experimental we are working on it to make it simpler to facilitate the management of your store.
In your administration area you must click on the "cog" icon to display the settings page of your store.
- From your admin, go to
Settings > Locations.
- Click Add location.
- Enter a unique name and an address for the location.
To update a location you click on an available location among those you have saved and you will have the update page.
The default location is the one in which all products will be collected with each order. If this location is empty the products will be searched in another and if it is the only one the product will be out of stock on your store.
You select a location and during the modification you click on the checkbox Set as default inventory
To delete a location you must click on a location to display it and at the bottom of the page you click on the delete button.
Once the location removed, all inventory will change and this could complicate your inventory management. This is why you will have a confirmation modal to be sure that this is indeed what you want to proceed.
